Kelly Clarkson Brought The ’90s Back With “Give Me One Reason” And It Was Perfect

Kelly Clarkson is the queen of covers, and her latest is a soulful rendition of Tracy Chapman's "Give Me One Reason" on Sirius XM. I'm obsessed. Never change, Kelly! [HuffPost]…

Watch This: Carrie Underwood’s Epic Cover Of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”

Last night, I went to a benefit concert called, "All For The Hall," which was put together by Vince Gill and Keith Urban to benefit the Country Music Hall of Fame. Reba was there, and Brett Eldredge, Kacey Musgraves, Lee Ann Womack, Ronnie Milsap, Deana Carter, David Nail, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Brantley Gilbert (who,…

Postmodern Jukebox’s Klezmer Cover Of Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty” Is Actually Great

Jason Derulo and 2 Chainz's song "Talk Dirty" is a corny and vaguely racist ode to fucking women all over the globe, London to Taiwan. Leave it to our favorite cover band, the unbelievably talented Postmodern Jukebox, to give it a klezmer remake that actually makes the song more listenable. The best part is whe…

Watch This: Arcade Fire Covers Boyz II Men’s “Motownphilly”

Arcade Fire has been treating fans to new covers on every stop of their Reflektor tour, with songs chosen specifically for each city. What did they play in Philadelphia? Why, the Boyz II Men classic, "Motownphilly," obviously! I've watched this video like 6 times and I still can't decide if their rendition is amazing or…

Kerry Washington Lands Her First Big Fashion Mag Cover

Can you believe that the June issue of Elle is Kerry Washington's first major fashion magazine cover? That is a Big Deal for the first black woman to headline a network TV show. Kerry's just breakin' barriers left and right, isn't she? I like it.

Alanis Morrissette Covers Green Day’s “Basket Case” As A Ballad

Last week, Billie Joe Armstrong melted down onstage at the IHeartMusic Festival and over the weekend he checked into rehab for substance abuse. Here his pal Alanis Morrissette covers Green Day's song "Basket Case" on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in the most Alanis Morrisette-y way possible, meaning as a ballad.  She told Billboard.com, "We're all figuring…

Kristen Stewart Sounds A Little Too Sure Of Herself In Glamour Germany

"I would never work with people who aren’t really creative and aren’t committed to what they do. Unfortunately, there are a lot of those people out there, they are fucking everywhere, and they try to suck the soul out of you. For example, I would never do a makeup campaign, even though the [final] photo…

First Look: Keira Knightley Wears A Weird Chanel Armwarmer For October’s “Vogue”

Isn't it nice to see Keira Knightley's pretty face adorning multiple magazine covers rather than someone like, say, Kim Kardashian? I jest, kind of, and I do know a few people who maintain that Keira is only marginally more talented than the reality star in question … but regardless, she's definitely more likable. I'll be…

British GQ’s Woman Of The Year Lana Del Rey Goes Nude For The Cover

Lana Del Rey is a music-world Svengali and she knows it. There's nothing I can say about her that somebody hasn't said already, and better than I ever could considering I'm all kinds of ambivalent about Lana: as a singer, as a performer, as a persona, as a human being (part of me isn't quite…

Lady Gaga Never Met Some Photoshop She Didn’t Love

This is Lady Gaga on the cover of Vogue, looking svelte and amazing and sort of vase-shaped. Only, this isn't what she actually looked like during the shoot -- at all. Not that she looked bad; she looked gorgeous. But come on -- if Gaga was actually built the way she appears on the cover…

Who Are The 10 Models With The Most Vogue Covers To Their Name?

This year's September issue of Vogue is, for lack of a better word, epic. It's, like, 1,000 pages, 600 of them ads, and not one of which includes a beauty spread. (I mean, come on, that's why I buy these damn magazines.) What it does include is an exhaustive history lesson in all things Vogue,…

Katy Perry Is Flame-Haired And Florence-Esque On The Cover Of L’Officiel

Katy Perry is no stranger to Crayola-colored hair, having long eschewed her natural blonde (!) for every which shade of the Manic Panic rainbow, but this is the first time we've seen the songstress looking so …  fiery! The September cover of French fashion mag L'Officiel casts Katy in a warmer, more romantic light, offsetting…

Hermione Who? Emma Watson Looks Magical On The Cover Of T Magazine

Embarrassingly enough, I was a very serious "Harry Potter" fan back in the day, cloak and wand at the book releases and all. (I probably shouldn't be outing myself on the Internet, but there it is.) I always thought Hermione was just the coolest, so my adoration of Emma Watson is really just a natural…

Azealia Banks’s Banned “Dazed & Confused” Cover Isn’t Half As Bad As It Could Be

When I heard that Harlem-born rapper and lyricist Azealia Banks's cover of art and fashion mag Dazed & Confused had been banned in seven countries before the issue even hit stands, I anticipated something infinitely more vulgar than her flipping off the camera as she inflates/fellates a condom. I mean, that's practically some Taylor Swift

In Case You Were Wondering, I Still Hate Lady Gaga

I couldn't feasibly be any less interested in Lady Gaga's Vogue cover. Frankly, I'm shocked that Anna Wintour would even go for it, considering that Gaga is so appallingly uninteresting at this point to everybody except her harem of zealots. I would rather see literally anybody, even Lea Michele, on the September issue. Okay, so maybe…

Keira Knightley Goes Goth And Gorgeous For The Cover Of “Harper’s Bazaar” UK

Confession: I haven't seen a Keira Knightley movie since "Love Actually," but I'll gladly own up to my weakness for the actress any day. How could I not, what with her impeccable bone structure? It also helps that, for all of Keira's delicate features and compelling roles (but also not really), she manages to come…

Beauty Cues: Get Rachel Weisz’s Look On The Cover Of Marie Claire UK

Rachel Weisz is so beautiful it's stupid, and I think much of her allure has to do with the fact that she lacks the eerily perfect symmetry of most Hollywood faces — she has a really unique, almost strange look to her that is beyond compelling. After all, Daniel Craig put a ring on it,…

The Numbers Are In: Who Holds The Highest Rank For The September Issue?

The September issue is a huge deal for fashion publications, so much so that an eponymous documentary chronicled its creation at Vogue headquarters. The total count of advertisement pages is indicative of the success of each title in the past year, and foretells what may come in the next. We've yet to even enter August…

Emma Stone Snags One Seriously Pretty Vogue Cover

Keep this on the down low: Vogue's July cover hasn't yet hit most media outlets, but someone, somewhere, let it slip, and it is gorgeous! Vogue is notoriously heavy-handed with the airbrushing, especially when it comes to the front of the mag, but it's a good sign that Emma Stone(cold fox) still looks like herself.

Celine Dion Covers Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep”

One of my favorite parts of the Celine Dion concert this weekend (besides ALL THE PARTS) was when Celine deviated from her usual song lineup and sang her own powerhouse version of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep." Apparently one of my fellow concertgoers was secretly recording it -- click on the video to listen for…
